.AVI Files - No Video On New Laptop.

I did a search but didn't find anything quite this specific... I purchased an HP DV9000 series notebook. Windows Vista. Windows Media Player 11 built-in. I have a few.avi files that I put on this notebook. I can hear the audio just fine but there isn't any video. Shouldn't video be playing right out of the box...?? Can anyone offer me any assistance as to how I can still use WMP11 and allow me to see video and hear audio on my .avi files? Help?

I have an HP ZV5445 running WMP11 with no problems. Yours should have no trouble handling a .avi extension. Open WMP and click Tools, Options, Devices and make sure there is a display device listed. You could also be missing the video codec.

I definitely have the ''DISPLAY" listed in the devices.... If I'm missing the video codec... any idea where I can download this codec for WMP11?? Sorry if that's a basic question... I've never had an issue with WMP before.

OK. I did a search for .avi codecs for windows vista and found a codec pack to install... thanks again for the assistance.

You could just download ffdshow and never give video codecs another thought. That's my solution, it's a lot cleaner than dowloading lots of codecs or codec packs and making a quagmire of direct show filters.
